Lucky there’s a Family Guy…

November 8, 2008

I have been watching this show for a very long time, and it never gets old! Family guy is too funny, every episode is hilarious!! It was was created by Seth Mcfarlane and it’s about a dysfunctional family.

The show revolves around the adventures of Petter Griffin, a bumbling but well-intentioned blue collar worker. Peter is an Irish American Catholic. His wife Lois is generally a stay-at-home mother and piano teacher, and has a distinct NY Accent from being a member a  wealthy family of socialites. Peter and Lois have three children: daughter Meg,  who is frequently the butt of jokes due to her homeliness and lack of popularity; teenage son Chris, who is overweight, unintelligent and, in many respects, a younger version of his father; infant son Stewie, a diabolical infant of ambiguous sexual orientation who has adult mannerisms and speaks fluently with an affected upper-class, English accent and uses archvillain phrases.  Living with the family is Brian, the family dog, who walks on two legs, drinks martinis, smokes and engages in human conversation, though he is still considered a pet in many respects.

Enjoy…

Nina…

August 29, 2008

I decided to add a new category to my blog: Things I Like!

I will start with my all time favorite  female singer, Nina Simone…

There are tons of reasons why she is my favorite… 1) her attitude towards life, 2) the way she carried herself, 3) her beautiful voice, and [my favorite reason] 4) her unexpected music.

I love her because she cannot be labeled as anything…

She was ( and still is) a little bit of everything!

Bio..

Eunice Kathleen Waymon  A.K.A  [the great] Nina Simone was born in North Carolina, USA, February 21, 1933. In the late 50s she recorded her first album.

Although Nina was called the “High Priestess of Soul” by her fans and was regarded by them as an almost religious figure, she was often misunderstood as well. The High Priestess would walk different paths to find the adequate songs to spread her message.

A protest singer; a jazz singer; a pianist; an arranger and a composer, Nina Simone is a great artist who defies easy classification. She is all of these: a jazz-rock-pop-folk-black musician. In fact, we can find her biography in jazz, rock, pop, black and soul literature. Her style and her hits provided many singers and groups with material for hits of their own.

Nina Simone died April 21, 2003 in Carry-le-Rouet, Bouches-du-Rhône, France.
